Unfortunetely OR is not on the fall schedule, but it is coming sometime midseason. Schedule posted below at this website
ABC (ended 2008)
It looks like when October Road does return that it will be on Mondays at 10 PM after the Bachelor ends its Fall run. So Mondays post DWTS and Bachelor will look like this.
9:00- Sam I am
9:30-Notes from the Underbelly
Not the best lead in for OR, but hopefully it can prove itself in this time slot.
Guys, midseason starters aren't bad ...
Look, think of it this way ... If OR starts in September, there will be a ton of dead weeks where they have their hiatuses right??? Well, the other day, on my way to work, there was this report on the radio about all the new shows this season ... they were talking about how everyone was so shocked that Lost was starting midseason, it being such a huge hit and all ... well they said their reasoning behind it all was ... well, kinda complicated. They said that with a show like Lost, so many viewers would have to be devoted to the show in order to keep such ratings. The type of viewers that when they aren't home to watch it, they record it, and if not that, as soon as possible, they get online to keep up with everything going on. ABC said, that fact of the matter is, viewers now days aren't to that point quite yet, so their approach is to have less hiatuses for the shows we love, and then midseason it almost be a complete switch out on their programs. So ... basically, when OR comes back on, just like Lost, it will run straight through ... no breaks, to make sure and hold the interest, and ratings, of viewers. Get it???
They are just fearing that if they start it in September, and stretch it till May, that with all the weeks that they take breaks, they are putting their neck on the line with losing viewers.
|It seems like ABC wants October Road to fail, because they are giving it a weak lead in and by mid-season people are going to forget about a show that has only had 6 episodes. Hopefully they will show all 6 episodes again right before they bring it back. My hope is that one of the new shows bombs early and they bring it on then.|
|it does sort of suck that it isn't coming back in fall, but the reasoning that krisi1021 posted oes make sense. well, i'm glad that it's atleast coming back|
